Question, is there a turbocharger that can be used to replace the  original 
one, as most have a much better bearing set up than the original  bushed 
unit and parts are really pricey. Jerry

I believe that there are two other items to consider (beside size).  First 
is cooling. Several newer units depend on engine coolant - usually  water - 
to assist in keeping the turbo within a certain heat range. Water is a  rare 
commodity in most Corvair engine compartments. Air pump vs. Air/Fuel pump.  
The Corvair is a draw through system, most newer turbos are designed for 
use  with EFI systems and fuel never passes through the compressor. Just keep 
these  in mind. 
Others will probably offer better specific suggestions.
